The Bauhaus school of art and design, founded by an architect Walter Gropius, in the Germany city of Weimar, only operated for 14 years between 1919 and 1933, leaving an influential remark on today's modernism.
The school's philosophy was to rebuild society and create an innovative design merging an avant-garde aesthetic with functionality, eventually turning into a movement.
The Bauhaus was one of very few academic institutions to accept female students. The title Bauhausmädels (“Bauhaus girls”) was representing the growing population of contemporary women who pursued professional futures and pushed the boundaries for the traditional gender roles. However, there were still remarks on the stereotypical gender roles, when it came to the selection of classes. Women were encouraged to take weaving or ceramics courses as the physically demanding workshops were said to be unsuitable for women. Whereas men could choose classes from sculpture, furniture design, graphic design, metalwork to architecture.
Bauhaus history would not be the same without female students, they fought gender inequality through pushing the boundaries and accomplishing incredible artistic pieces.
